Winter Wonderfest

Every holiday season, southern Delaware comes to life with the opening of Winter Wonderfest – a showcase of everything amazing about the holidays.

During the six-week celebration, perfect for the whole family, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy, from the lovely miniature homes in the Schell Christmas Village and visits from Santa for the kids, to the beer garden hosted by Crooked Hammock Brewery for the grownups.Wonderfest Ferris Wheel

Winter Wonderfest really shines with its elaborate drive-through Light Spectacular decorating scenic Cape Henlopen State Park, perfect for an evening drive or a 5K run on opening night for the more adventurous.

One of the highlights of the event is the Visit Delaware full-sized ice rink. Skaters can rent ice skates on site and enjoy gliding on the ice surrounded by glimmering holiday lights before playing a carnival game or getting on one of the thrilling rides.

Whether you’re driving from a few minutes or taking the Ferry from Cape May, there’s more to enjoy about a trip to Winter Wonderfest than the event’s festivities alone. Make even more discovers by turning your Wonderfest visit into a weekend-long getaway.
